Bullying Prevention and Intervention
The Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS) Initiatives highlighted in this report illustrate a variety of innovative and noteworthy approaches to the problem of bullying. This report presents brief descriptions—“snapshots”—of bullying prevention efforts from SS/HS communities across the country and highlights key themes that contribute to their success.
Over the past decade, what we know about bullying has increased dramatically. Through research and best practices, we now have the knowledge, tools, and strategies to ensure that students are safe to learn in bullying-free environments.
SS/HS sites serve as models of effective bullying prevention efforts, and help to advance the national agenda on bullying prevention. The SS/HS snapshots capture successful, innovative strategies to keep our eyes on bullying and promote the health and well-being of the nation’s youth.
